Let me start by saying I was not expected much from this game before I bought it but two games for less than 30quid you cant really complain about that.
The real value for money comes from The Ballad of Gay Tony but it doesnt mean its not worth playing The Lost and Damned story.
The Lost and Damned. youre basically a biker trying to make something of gang but this goes wrong when your leader comes out of rehab. This puts you into mission after mission of gang rivalry which does get a tad repetitive and boring. Luckily (depending on your views) you can finish this game in less than day! Having 25 mini gang-war games and races makes this drag out a little longer again a bit repetitive.
The Ballad of Gay Tony. now youre the bodyguard to the flamboyant Tony Prince (Gay Tony). He will have you running all sorts of errands and introducing you to interesting characters making this more exciting (and very similar to GTA: Vice City) than the Lost and Damned. Mini games include managing his clubs (Doorman in other words) skydiving cage fighting drug runs (with your friends). To me this should have been the original GTA: IV.
The stories are cleverly written to tie in with GTA: IV.
Both Niko and Roman pop up somewhere in the stories.
New features include new vehicles and weapons new social hangouts such as the golf range and air hockey. I think this is a real credit to GTA: IV and well worth the asking price.
Sorry I cannot comment on the online feature yet as I have been more interested in playing TBoGT.
It certainly was more than I was expecting though just a shame it took so long to arrive on the PS3!!
